This is my mother's madien name.  She has two sisters and one brother, and one of her sisters is her twin.  I just started doing research on the May side of my family....The Mays and the Wests all grew up together as well and the Kings....there is not a web page for King because it is not a direct descent.  My Aunt Bernice who has been doing May and West research is a King and grew up near Gonzales, Texas with my grandfather and his relatives.  If you have any questions please email me at janson@rcn.com
